Vs. Pinball was released in the arcade as part of Nintendo's Vs. series, allowing to players to sit or stand opposite one another in order to play head to head. Vs. Pinball was released in the arcades in November 1984. Due to extra memory allocation, Vs. Pinball contains a few features that Famicom Pinball does not have, many of which increase the difficulty of the game.

Cameo in WarioWare - Twisted! (2005, Nintendo GBA) : One of 9-volt's games is based on the Arcade Pinball's bonus game.
